Go to NVDA preferences and then on Win10 OCR, there you can choose the OCR language, it lists you all languages you got installed in your Windows 10.

Hello:
I'm using win10 with nvda 18.1. So without any choice I'm supposed to use win10 ocr functionality. As far as I know it has only English as recognition language. If there is another language how can i choose them? And if my target language is not among the options it may give, how can I add one. That's all for now. :)


Re: Brltty: what is it for?

Antony Stone
 

Brltty is a generic Braille display driver which is available on many different
operating systems (Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD at least) and supports a very
large number of Braille displays.

It can be used with applications such as NVDA to provide support for displays
for which NVDA itself has no specific driver.

The results are not always as complete as you might get with a specific driver
between the application and the display (for example, some features of the
display may not be supported), but it's a good way to get basic functionality
for a device which otherwise can't be used at all.


Regards,


Antony.

Hi:
Even though my target language is added in the time and language in
the settings, the win10 ocr in preferences still has one language
only. Could you please tell me how to install a language pack and it
may appear among the choices?

Re: NVDA and Windows Audio Service (audiodg.exe)

valiant8086
 

Hi.


Is this a dell? If so, I'll need to gloat for a bit. I have a serious hate on for the wave max audio stuff.  If it is, a possible fix is to delete the audio driver and reboot. For a short while after you reboot, you'll have a stock windows driver that works fine with the only exception being that it doesn't support headsets with the microphone on the same 8th inch plug in a combo jack, it still records from internal even if you use a headset with a microphone on it. Note though  a couple of things, if you end up with no sound, you need a way to recover. I suggest making sure NVDA remote is set to auto start and auto connect in the allow another pc to control this one mode, and if you have another computer handy, restart without doing anything else to ensure you're able to get in from the other computer. Alternatively if you have a USB sound device you could plug in, that'll work.


If this solution works, until the driver updates itself again, you can use the WinaeroTweaker application (free download) to block all driver updates. Dell is really good about  making sure your drivers stay up to date so drastic measures are needed to stop it. I don't even know if this will work, when I had a dell for a few days I didn't know about this, so I tried another alternative that worked, denying system write privilages to the realtek folder in program files (and program files (x86) both, but for the system account only If you do it that way, be darn sure you don't accidentally do it to your own account or I won't be able to figure out how to get you to be able to see the folder again to fix it. Deny write and modify to it, for the system account and only that.


Alternatively, if this is recent, let's blame NVDA? Lol

Re: NVDA on the El Braille

valiant8086
 

Hi.

Yes I am an Elbraille user. There is an extended braille gestures add-on I believe on the official NVDA add-ons page that brings most of the missing functionality.


I'm confused about your JAWS issue with no spanish braille, because JAWS18 uses libluis, which I am surprised to hear doesn't have anything but computer braille in Spanish.


To be able to cycle between JAWS and NVDA, assign one of the elbraille buttons to launch NVDA. Otherwise, you won't be able to start NVDA with JAWS already running, as two screen readers are unable to do anything that makes sense with one braille display. You'll need close JAWS first then start NVDA using that elbraille button. If you need to go back to JAWS, close NVDA and use the Elbraille Rescue Menu (hold down e1, and use your volume keys to find JAWS Restart, then hit E4 to execute.


Have fun learning the new gestures for that NVDA add-on though, I tried and gave up, mostly because I prefer JAWS at this point anyway but, it's all very different and quite a headache for those already used to doing it the JAWS way.


I can't keep up with this list much. If you want to ensure a response from me about further discussion of the Elbraille, be sure to include my email address directly. If it's on topic, and you also sent it to the list, I'll come into the folder for this and find it and respond on list.


Hope this is useful.

is one major issue I have run in to. That is, the lack of Spanish
Braille entry support in JAWS. Called up VFO, only to be told that if I
wanted to use JAWS in another language, I would have to buy another
license from a distributor in Latin America. I informed them that no, I
was able to get Spanish JAWS to activate here in the U.S, (by keeping
format options set to English-US, and in almost every way, it works.
However, even in the Spanish version of JAWS, the only Braille entry
offered is computer Braille. While I am used to, and much prefer having
my OS in Spanish, and can read Spanish Braille, I have no idea how to
type certain things in eight dot, aka computer, Braille. And it seems
that VFO just didn't want to deal with it. Even contacted a distributor
in Argentina, only to be told that since I didn't buy the license from
them, that they could not offer support.

So, that got me thinking. I have used NVDA for years. the commands are
already more familiar to me. Granted, I had never used it with a Braille
display before, bbut I thought... this thing runs Windows. What can stop
me from putting NVDA on it and doing things that way? I detached the
focus 14 and took NVDA with the focus 14 for a quick test drive. Spanish
input and output work perfectly so far as I could tell..

So, here are a few things I have noticed.

1. There doesn't seem to be any support for simulating a press of a
function key from the Braille display.

2. It does not seem possible to do keystrokes which require several
modifiers at once, (alt + tab, alt + f4, ctrl + C, etc. Am I missing
something, or is my assesment correct? Does anyone else on this list
have an El Braille? I wonder if an NVDA addon could be produced to make
it play nicer with this particular device.

There are several reasons one might wish to do this. I already explained
my reasoning, but being that there are only 2 gb of ram on the device,
NVDA is a much lighter program, not so much of a resource hog. Also, a
lot of the NVDA commands seem to be much more intuitive. A W-chord (for
Windows makes lots more sense than right shift + dot 4. E-chord for
escape, makes a lot more sense than the Z-chord used by Jaws.

Thanks,

Justin



Re: NVDA Errors with MS Word 2003 spelling checker

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Paul,

Does it cause any issues using the spell checker?  IE if you didn't look at the log (and if you're using a Snapshot build if you didn't have the sound to indicate an error) would it be noticeable to a regular user?

Also, regardless of all that, have you noticed this in say the latest Next / master / stable build etc specifically where it didn't used to do that?

Regards

Quentin.

Re: creating A portable copy

Gene
 

I believe the person is placing the portable copy on a thumb drive.  The question may be asking how to run the program on a computer with no way to know what lettter is the drive letter and with no other screen-reader running. 
 
Run Narrator, find the folder and open it.  If you open the folder and type the letter n, you will be on the correct file so you can just type n and press enter.  After NVDA is running, you can shut down Narrator.  It causes no problems having both NVDA and Narrator running at the same time and closing Narrator causes no problems for NVDA running. 
 
Also, the NVDA installer doesn't create its own folder.  Always create a folder or use a preexisting one you have created.  If you don't, the files will be placed in whatever folder is being used or right on the main part of the drive, neither of which would be desirable.  In general, installers of portable software create their own folders.  Other activities such as unzipping files create their own folders.  The NVDA portable installer not doing so is a serious lack of conformance to usual procedure and may cause people inconvenience and annoyance if they assume the installer will work as is generally the case.  This should be changed. 
 
I should add that if this has been changed in recent versions, then that's good.  I haven't used recent versions.  But up until many months ago, it wasn't the case.

Using windows10 ocr functionality with other language than English?

Angaragerdene
 

Hello:
I'm using win10 with nvda 18.1. So without any choice I'm supposed to
use win10 ocr functionality. As far as I know it has only English as
recognition language. If there is another language how can i choose
them? And if my target language is not among the options it may give,
how can I add one. That's all for now. :)

Only on 10. I tend to create a shortcut to it with a known keystrokewhich is the same for all machines. Saves the old grey matter overheating.

Hi, Gene NZ,

I think it was control enter in earlier versions of windows 10 if I'm not mistaken.

Hi


Probably the easiest way so you get a idea is to use narrator first.

What operating system are you using?


I think in the earlier versions of windows it was the windows key + the enter key to start narrator


In later versions of Windows in 10 i think it was not sure which version
it was the CTRL key + windows key + the enter key.


This would start up your copy of narrator. You would then navigate to
where your drives were.


i would use the Windows key + E to bring up file explorer then go down
to the USB stick then go into the folder of nvda then find the nvda.exe
file then press the enter key. NVDA then would start up then i would use
the alt/tab key to bring up narrator then close it with the alt + f4 key.


After that you would then use NVDA.


If there is a log on screen I have found no way around that. to start nvda.


The other way I have on my usb sticks is labeling the usb stick which
would be labeled qqq then a folder made called nvda and the files went
into that. I like that way 2.


The nvda audio tutorials page can be found at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

There are different ways of starting nvda from a usb stick there I think
from Xp up to windows 10 which depending how you have it set is if you
jump any extra hoops which might be the same for other operating systems.


You will see what i mean for say windows 10 on how you have it set to
what hoops you might have to jump.

Hi okay that is what i did is create A new folder.

And then made the portable copy so then how to you run the portable copy.

So now you first put in your removable drive make the folder called
nvda on it.

Then close out of that and then go and make your portable copy but
when you are making it.

You of course select the letter of your removable drive that you want
it created on and then the folder you want it in.

So once that is done then how do you get that portable to run.

Either on your machine or another machine?

This is my first time really doing this and wanting to make sure I do
it correctly.

When ever i make a portable version of NVDA I always make a folder and
usually call it nvda. it will then put all your files into that folder.
make sure you do not have other folders or files starting with the
letter n as well.



You can have other folders on the USB stick but not with the letter N
and or you could put your files into those folders if it is other stuff.
Otherwise what could happen also is if it is the only thing you are
putting the files onto it will splatter your files all over the USB
stick.
It would be rather harder to start your copy of nvda then.
There are 58 files or so that nvda uses and if you had extra folders or
files you get the idea.

I do if you are interested have different ways of starting NVDA from a
USB stick on my website which can be found on my nvda audio tutorials
page on my website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net
The easiest way for new people is to start narrator then find the USB
stick with nvda on it if going to a new machine. I do not use narrator
as i am pretty use to starting NVDA from a USB stick on a different
computer.

I have to say that once you have it, assuming its on an internal drive, I simply make a shortcut and move that to my desktop as you get more used to things you can as I do put little batch files in the folder with nvda which will automatically close any other running instance of nvda first. its good to do this even if its on a stick or it won't work if nvda is on the machine but acting silent. One thing to watch is that if you are doing portable work and you may encounnter a machine running xp or vista, is to have two versions on the stick, one 2017.3 for those machines and one of the latest release.

I usually create a portable copy into a folder previously made by myself.
To make it run, I simply open the folder , find nvda.exe and click enter on that.
